About The Cowshed

The Cowshed couldn't be more welcoming. The pet-friendly self-catering holiday cottage was once a rustic farm building but is now a bright, spacious barn conversion sleeping up to four people in two bedrooms. It's perfect for couples and families and, with accommodation all on the ground floor, suits guests who need to avoid using stairs. The views are as impressive as the accommodation - you can see all the way to the Kerry Ridgeway, overlooking rolling fields where sheep happily graze on lush Welsh grass. The Cowshed is on the family-run Llwyn Coppa Farm in Adfa, at the end of a private road with no passing traffic. The village shop is half a mile away, with more amenities nearby in Newtown.

Adfa is a small village with a garage/village shop, a village hall, and a friendly farming community. You'll find plenty to keep you happily occupied during your stay, no matter what the season or the weather. There are lovely walks in the area, including a favourite local circular route taking in the Three Lakes. The region also has miles of bridleways that are accessible to mountain bikers. The 15-mile Kerry Ridgeway route follows an old drover's trail. It's suitable for walkers and mountain bikers who like a challenge - every part is at least 1,000ft above sea level - and stunning views over Powys and Shropshire. There are also lovely routes around Lake Vyrnwy, Bala Lake, the Mongomery Wildlife Reserve, and Elan Valley. If you'd rather do your walking whilst playing golf, you'll appreciate having three courses within a 15-minute drive. Southern Snowdonia and the Cambrian Mountains are around 20 miles away, with even more exciting mountain bike trails and footpaths.

Local attractions include Powis Castle and Gardens, Gregynog Hall, and the Hafod Estate. Visit the ruins of Montgomery Castle and Dolforwyn Castle, both in the expert care of Cadw, and learn about the area's history in museums at Newtown and Llanidloes. Newtown is eight miles away for all of your shopping needs. It's a busy town on the banks of the Severn, well served with cafes, pubs and other local businesses. Half an hour away, Llanidloes is another lovely town with excellent amenities, as is Welshpool.

The Cowshed is one of two superb holiday cottages at Llwyn Coppa. Each is entirely separate and self-contained. Depending on availability, you can book them to accommodate two families who want to holiday together.

Accommodation Comprises:

The Cowshed (or Beudy Uchaf, in Welsh, which means Upper Cowshed) is a gorgeous conversion with original beams, oak flooring, and lots of handcrafted touches that make it feel wonderfully warm and welcoming. Accommodation is entirely on one level.

  • Relax in the calming sitting room, an oasis with leather sofas, a TV with Freeview channels and a DVD player, and glass doors that open onto the patio and frame stunning rural views.
  • Cooking and eating are a pleasure in the well-equipped kitchen/diner. An original stone wall is complemented with oak and slate flooring, while an antique table and chairs is a charming contrast to the modern appliances.
  • Dual aspect windows showcase lovely views in the master bedroom, furnished with a pine double bed and matching bedside tables, wardrobe and chest of drawers.
  • Twin single beds accommodate either children or adults in the second bedroom, which has ample storage and picturesque views.
  • Family bathroom with a shower over the bath, WC and a handbasin.

Outside: The cottage has a private enclosed garden with a patio and outdoor seating. There is allocated off-street parking.

Additional Information: Utilities, WiFi, bed linen and bath towels are provided. A travel cot (no bedding) and a highchair are available on request. Well-behaved dogs are welcome but need to be kept on a lead outside of the cottage and garden due to the livestock in the fields. Please note that whilst the property is wheelchair accessible the bathroom just has a bath with a shower over it. Short breaks are possible outside of peak season. Smoking is not permitted.
